Now I know that words for a WW post may be a little crazy bit what can I say? I am at times, if nothing else, just a little on the crazy side.
Deciding to make the most of the last public holiday for Christmas we headed to the city for the day. Even though the city may only be a mere fifteen minute drive away, we do not really venture there very often. Today we had a some errands to run that involved shops only found in the city so decided it made the perfect excuse to venture in that direction and hang out at the gorgeous new (well newish at two, nearly three years old now but to long term locals that is new).
The plan was to park the car, go for walk into the mall, have some lunch, go for a swim and head home for a relaxing afternoon. For the most part everything went according to plan. Unfortunately though both shops we needed to go to in the mall were closed but we had such a lovely time wandering around that it didn't matter. The water for swimming was cool and refreshing despite being a little smelly. I guess that is only to be expected though when man goes around changing coastlines and such. The recent heavy rains may also be slightly to blame for the stinky swampy smell.
While I love the novelty of being able to blog from my phone it is not all it is cracked up to be. The screen is so incredibly small and being the awesome computer geek that I am (not really but could be) I am a touch typer. Which makes reverting to two finger typing on the phone more than a little tricky. Since we are heading to the real big smoke in a few weeks, I thought that I should see whether phone blogging was possible. That way I could keep you all updated on my fun and adventures. (I can hear the sigh of relief from here).
The uploading of photos is great, especially the Instagram ones. Sadly though that is about the only positive I have seen so far and since I prefer to take photos with my camera...
But I digress.
Back to the photos for WW.
They aren't really all that exciting now that I look at them again. Last night when I posted them I was sure they were incredibly arty and appealing. The other downside to a small screen size I guess. Can't win them all I guess. We did have a really lovely day though. It was nice just getting out and being in the fresh air. The cloud coverage is still quite thick which while makes the UV rating higher does take the edge off the sun and cools things down a little.
Hubs and I don't really venture out all that often so it was quite novel to sit at a coffee shop (that served alcohol) while the little ones ran around the large grassy area nearby. It almost felt like we were proper people and not just parents. Of course this feeling was quickly replaced when DD3 fell over and screamed only when the strangers tried to pick her up. Just another step closer to Mother of the Year for me.
For now though I must bid you all adieu. In preparation for my New Years resolutions I am trying to be a little more active. I have a heap of posts floating around my head so hopefully I will be able to get them out sooner rather than later. Make sure you are following along (plenty of options to choose from see side bar for more details)
Oh and one last thing...have you entered my giveaway yet?
